EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - The Everett City Council has approved a settlement in a 2012 car crash that killed a Whidbey Island man.

The Daily Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2k0zhBZ ) that the city will pay $25,000 to the two minor children of Mitchell Casey.

The accident happened on Broadway. The northbound lane made a hard right turn onto a bridge over the onramp to I-5.

Casey was heading north on Broadway when he missed the turn and hit a guardrail. He later died in the hospital.

Casey’s estate alleged the city was responsible for negligent roadway design and said the signs where the road divides were insufficient.

The settlement puts an end to the final lawsuit filed against Everett in connection with two crashes at the same location just north of the Evergreen Cemetery.
